VMAX Climax (Japanese: ハイクラスパック VMAXクライマックス High Class Pack VMAX Climax) is the name given to the eighth Japanese subset released during the Sword & Shield Era of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. It features the collection symbol "S8b". The subset contains a large number of reprinted cards from the Sword & Shield Era as well as Character Rare Full Art cards featuring Pokémon Trainers in the artwork.


The High Class Pack VMAX Climax was released in Japan on December 3, 2021 and continues the trend established with preceding High Class Packs, featuring a large amount of reprinted cards, with particular focus on Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX. Several of the Pokémon included in the subset feature artwork previously exclusive to English expansions and various items of merchandise. Other than Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX cards, all non-secret cards do not have a rarity symbol.

For Japanese and Traditional Chinese releases, each box contains 10 booster packs, and each booster pack contains 11 cards, with 1 guaranteed Holofoil Energy card, 1 card guaranteed to be either a Reverse Brick Holofoil or regular Character Rare, and 1 card guaranteed to be either a Pokémon V, VMAX, V-UNION or have a rarity of SR or above. For Thai releases, each box contains 20 booster packs, and each booster pack contains 5 cards, with 1 card guaranteed to have a rarity of R or above.
